Panasonic Automotive & Industrial Systems Europe has today announced the technologies that the company will be presenting at SENSOR+TEST. The trade fair, which will take place from 31 May to 1 June 2017 in Nuremberg, is a forum for sensors, measuring and testing technologies. At Stand 1-210 in Hall 1, Panasonic will showcase its industry-leading innovations – including sensors, wireless modules and the peer-to-peer IoT framework "OpenDOF" which can enhance the efficiency and reliability of numerous applications.
For this year's SENSOR+TEST, Panasonic Automotive & Industrial Systems has put together a selection of the most exciting products from its sensor portfolio for industrial applications. Along with H2 sensors, PM2.5 dust sensors, pressure-sensitive switches and magneto-resistive sensors, Panasonic will be exhibiting the following sensor solutions:
Grid-EYE 64-pixel IR sensor – smallest and most affordable 64-pixel – all in on chip – thermal imaging camera
With the new types (AMG8833, AMG8834, AMG8853 and AMG8854) of the second generation of the Grid-EYE sensor, Panasonic offers improved temperature resolution (NETD –Noise Equivalent Temperature Difference) of ±0.16 °C at 10 Hz and ±0.05 °C at 1 Hz. The measuring distance for people can thus be increased from 5 m to up to 7 m. In addition to the hardware, Panasonic will demonstrate what you can get out of 64 pixels: people detection, tracking, presence detection, and algorithms for achieving the kind of resolutions that you would expect from expensive thermal cameras with several hundred thousand pixels.
Pressure sensor – for high- and low-pressure measurement
Panasonic will demonstrate its 20 years of expertise in the area of miniature semiconductor pressure sensor solutions with its extensive range of products for precision applications. The range of relative pressure sensors delivers a robust solution for a wide range of applications with a focus on factory automation and medical technology – with or without amplifier.   The small, cost-effective design makes it a perfect match for price-sensitive solutions.
